Ramen is one of my greatest weaknesses (besides pretty girls and pretty video games, LOL). I went out last week and was able to try out one of the newest places in BGC, Ramen Kagetsu Arashi!
I learned about the resto through a PhoneBooky article that stated some of the new eats you can try in Manila. Luckily one of them was just walking distance from my office, yay!
Ramen Kagetsu Arashi is located in the Net Lima Building in BGC, the building that houses the CBTL 26th Street Bistro, Wild Flour, and Farmacy. You just have to go around the building until you see a Manam, and the ramen place is right beside it.
In the dark of the night, it’s a very bright beacon of ramen hope! LOL. Before going in, you can already see what you’re gonna get.
Replicas of food that you can order in a resto are kinda typical in Japan. Prices are stated as well.
What I love the most are the high ceilings and the nice wooden paneling.
The place is small yet cozy, though. But enough of that, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on their signature dishes!
For appetizers, we ordered their Tori Karaage (Php170).
Sadly, this dish was a tad too oily for my tastes. I did, however, really like the seasoning of the breading and the chicken was soft.
The ramen I ordered was the Arashi Genkotsu Sio. I got the Jr. Bowl for Php225 (because I’m a lady, LOL!), but regular-sized bowls are priced at Php330.
A local favorite, our Sio ramen is infused with sea salt that goes light and easy on the tastebuds, naturally sweet and refreshingly tasty.
It was pretty okay, you can taste the garlic but it’s not overbearing. It reminds me of Ramen Nagi’s broth but in a lighter, less heavy manner. Noodles are also okay and the meat slice was tender.
My companion ordered the Arashi Genkotsu Char Siew Ramen for Php410.
Char Siew – 5pcs. Enjoy you favorite bowl of ramen with more Char Siew.
I’m not sure what broth he ordered but all I noticed was, “There’s a lot of meat!!” 🙂
In the end, it was a pretty okay dinner, however, nothing was outstanding about their ramen. It’s pretty affordable so for those who prefer garlic-y broth that isn’t much of a pain on your wallet, it might be worth a try.
